NHS to NHS Procedure for honorary contracts

An individual is required to hold an honorary contract in order to conduct certain activities within the Cardiff & Vale UHB and use the facilities of the Cardiff & Vale UHB. The award of an honorary contract from the Cardiff & Vale UHB ensures that individuals are appropriately indemnified by Cardiff & Vale UHB for any NHS work activities undertaken under the honorary contract and that individuals are subject to the governance arrangements.
